Lankford Tapped for Senate Energy Committee

Fri, 05 Feb 2021 07:50:10 CST

Lankford Tapped for Senate Energy Committee In an announcement by Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) this evening, Senator James Lankford (R-OK) was selected to join the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources for the 117th Congress. He will continue to serve on the Senate Committee on Finance, the Senate Select Committee on Ethics, the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs, and the Senate Committee on Indian Affairs.

“Oklahoma has always stood proud as an all-of-the-above energy state and having Oklahoma represented on this committee is vital,” said Lankford. “Diverse energy options keep prices low and availability high. Oklahomans do not want rolling electricity blackouts and high prices like California. America’s energy industry faces numerous obstacles from a new Administration that has already shown that they plan to crush any business or family working with oil, gas, or coal. As a nation, we should pursue policies that promote energy independence, while also ensuring we have clean air and clean water. We can and should do both. I look forward to discussing these critical issues that face our state as I represent Oklahomans on this committee.”

Last week, Lankford joined an effort in the Senate to prohibit the President or his Administration from blocking energy or mineral leasing and permitting on federal lands without Congressional approval. He joined several of his colleagues to call for a meeting with President Biden to discuss several Executive actions that directly impact energy workers. Lankford also criticized Biden’s recent decision to stop construction of the Keystone XL pipeline, which would safely provide for oil to travel from Canada through the US to the Gulf of Mexico.
